United Way Campaign Well Under Way

With a successful September kick-off event behind them, and more than $35,000 already raised, organizers have the 2004 UBC United Way Campaign well underway.

“Pledge packages were delivered in late September, and donors have already been generous through their donations and event participation,” said Stan Auerbach, a sessional instructor in the faculty of education who is 2004 Campaign Chair. “One of our goals this year is to raise donor participation by five per cent so we are on our way to achieving that.”

“Volunteers have really been working hard on campaigns throughout departments on campus,” Auerbach said. “If you’re looking for a coffee and donut morning, an international food fair or a 50/50 draw, you can find one in an area near you,” Auerbach said of the range of fundraising activities available for campus participation.

Upcoming events this month include the annual Land and Building Services International Food Festival and the UBC-Ritsumeikan Open House. Visit the website at www.unitedway.ubc.ca for campaign event details.

For more information on this year’s campaign, upcoming events, or how to donate, please contact Liz King, Campaign Coordinator, at 604.822.8929 or united.way@ubc.ca.
